How to go live on Discord?

How to stream on Discord

  1. Open Discord on your Android, iOS, macOS, or windows. Note that you should use an installed app rather than Discord’s website
  2. Next, join a voice channel that you are allowed to stream in it. After that, see if “Video” or “Screen” are clickable at the bottom of the window. If you are using the mobile app, you will see the button with the icon of video camera
  3. Now, you will see two options of “video” and “screen” at the bottom of the screen. These options mean that you would like to stream video from your webcam or share your computer screen. If you are using the mobile app, you can click on the video camera icon, and your screen will start to be recorded.
  4. In this case, if you click “Video,” your webcam will turn on, and you will begin streaming. But if you select “Screen,” you have to choose the window you want to share. You can broadcast everything on your screen at once, or just specific windows.
  5. On the next level, you will choose the resolution and frame rate of your streaming screen. Remember that if you select high resolutions, your internet connection must be strong enough with increased bandwidth.
  6. If you are using your computer or laptop for streaming, you will also see an option for “Sound.” By toggling this option to the right, you stream sound from your computer as well. People will still be able to hear your microphone as well.
  7. Finally, you only need to click “Go Live” when all settings are okay.
